Asking for a raise/bonus after only 6 months? All, So i'm 6 months into my new position. Most of you know I was an FLDP in Aerospace and I immediately left that company for what I think was a promising position in healthcare at a smaller more meritocratic.

In love with a girl who you are pretty sure is...Long story short, i've been dating a girl casually for about 7 months and we have been, supposedly, "exclusive" for going on 4 now. However, we are going to have to be long distance for a year. She moved home in May and is there until she starts her new 1yr volunteer commitment that is many... 1 year 11 months
Is renting in NYC/NJ impossible to do sight...What the topic says. I am moving for work and need to do it quickly. But I haven't been able to have any luck because of the fact that I can't make it to the area before I need to move. The last two times I moved I just rented a place from craigslist from pics but no one seems to want to allow me... 2 years 1 week

Do I have a chance at Top 10 B-School's?Yes 1 week 1 day
Length of GMAT Study PlansI did 9 weeks and got a 700. I honestly wasn't quite ready but was getting burnt out doing it 20hrs a week and working 60-70. I ultimately decided on a 5 week cram and retake and brought it up to a 730. I think this thread makes it pretty clear that it's personal and not one size fits all. 1 week 1 day
How is Wash U viewed?[quote="PLG"]While this may have been true in the past, I can definitely say this isn't true for more recent (last 5 years) placements at WashU. Although overall fewer students place into IB (much higher interest in consulting and other areas as WashU is not an IB focused school like NYU or Wharton... 1 week 2 days
Harvard Accused of Bias Against Asian-Americans[quote="MBAGrad2015"]First, I'm not Brady. Second, did you even read my posts? You obviously did not or you did but struggle with reading comprehension. I said explictly that college admission should not be based entirely on test scores. What I said was that the data shows that college adcom... 1 week 3 days
"Wife Bonuses" - Allowances of the...[quote="littleredman"]At first thought it sounds like a good idea to me. It makes the wife feel like she is adding value and being rewarded for that value and there are great incentives in place. Everyone does it, this way just happens to be much more structured and seems like it could prevent a... 1 week 3 days
Harvard Accused of Bias Against Asian-AmericansI'm dying at the comparison's to the civil rights movement and world war era Jews. It's interesting to me how people like Brady can have such little perspective on the world that they think you can rank and file people by SAT scores. Complete lack of social awareness and aptitude. And he... 1 week 3 days
How is Wash U viewed?[quote="ib_2020"]How would you compare it to Amherst, Vandy, and Northwestern, and do the people who get to ibanking from WashU only get them because they have connections?[/quote] Lots of IB placements are people without connections.

Goldman Sachs Technology Exit OpportunitiesLots of great talent but it is a technology position, not business.

UNC KF or NYU MBA?[quote="sillymonkey123"]UNC-Chapel Hill is substantially more prestigious than NYU. You have to be to joking dude.
